... (1981) and Raiverman (1992) compared to the Red Sea, which would mean the existence of an oceanic ridge. It is also interesting that the Red Sea rift shows a genetic relation between intracratonic rifts and mid-oceanic ridges in view of the continuity between the Red Sea and the Carlsberg ridge ( Figure 5). Indeed, a simple rift valley should not qualify for the "suture" as it dies out at both the ends. ...
